Let me clarify.
SG=Centax Clutch
Threaded=3 shoe

Also, what type of battery pack is needed? Hump Flat, and how many cells?
Ive been looking for a kit that catches my eye, this is it . 166 dollars from towerhobbies too. Can you say cheap?!

That is a C-class and is very cheap. Comes with a front diff not a one-way and comes with the three shoe clutch which can be fitted to either type enginer - the clutch nuts for either type engine are included with that kit. The only major thing missing is there are no roll bars with that kit, everything else is good.

The battery is a 5 cell like AAA's three and two. If it fits a MTX3 it should be ok.

daniz24... Check out the Mongoose/G4 thread... A few of us already have... I'll say this.... It's a must have if you're looking for speed and a super smooth system...

Hi Alan, I hope it's worth the money. Do you really can notice the differences?

For Joe average racer... I would say no they don't need it... Now if you're really into racing and want the very best performance out of your motor... Then yes, I would get the UFO clutch. The flywheel and clutch bell are a tad bit larger then before so keep that in mind. You can't slap the old clutch bell onto the new UFO clutch... To me... It's a must have if you're a serious racer and want to be a step ahead of the competion... Some hopups are just bling bling... This one really works...

fenix... The G4 ball cups should fit your Trinity Reflex NT... The reason your rc10gt ball cups didn't fit is because one is American standard size... the rc10gt and one is metric... the Reflex NT... Sorry for the spelling... It's 3am in the morning... lol...

thats unbelievable nick!!!!

why do you spent so much time to build silly things like bags or 1:8 setup systems. the g4 had enough problems which have to be cleared. so put your brainpower into this!!

to start with the flywheel is slightly larger and heavier which allows the engine to idle smoother during pitstops and carry some off throttle inertia which is not bad for corner speed. It is deeper so the flyweights sit deep in the flywheel and the angle on the sides of the flywheel where the flyweights sit is a higher angle which makes the flyweights react quicker in engagement and disengagement for much better response and more consistant response. the pressure plate has an odd shape (looks like an upside down UFO, hence the name)that guides the flyweights straight so they don't cock against the flywheel pins, this allows the clutch shoe to hit the clutch bell straight on every time.(the flywheel pins are pressed into the flywheel perfectly straight so the disc won't hang up, they have to be more precision than a standard setup) The flyweights have 2 weights for tunability and the bell has three holes for venting directly in line with the clutch shoe contact patch (IE like cross drilled brake rotors) sealed clutch bell bearings come with it and they keep the bearings cleaner. and the best part is that when it hits it locks up and stays hooked hard everytime. The kit comes with the red spring but the orange option spring is the one to use set 1.5 threads below flush on adjustment to start with the bell shimmed to .6MM end play.

Unfortunatly everything on the system is all by itself even the clutch bell as it is slightly larger so only UFO bells will work with it. You have to use the entire system as a singular unit or it won't stack up right.

It would not suprise me to see other manufacturers follow suit on the UFO pressure plate design
